Episode 167: Tiit Helimets

Tiit discusses dancing both male principal roles in Balanchine’s Serenade; some of the differences between Serenade and another Balanchine ballet in this season’s repertory, The Four Temperaments; and how his approach to the role of Albrecht in Giselle has changed as he has matured. The conversation includes what earning a bachelor’s degree has meant to him as an artist, his recent teaching experience and what he gains from it in his own classroom work, and how he balances the demands of work and family.
